From the busy waterfront to the mountains, forests, beaches and vineyards, Cape Town’s bounty of things to see and do can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned travellers. Start with a visit to the V&A Waterfront, the most visited tourist attraction in South Africa featuring world-class shopping, excellent dining and entertaining nightlife. Take a stroll along the Sea Point Promenade to the Green Point Urban Park, which showcases some spectacular public artworks. Alternatively, tackle one of Cape Town’s many hiking trails – Newlands Forest offers a leisurely wander while Lion’s Head poses more of a challenge. As far as mountains go, no trip to Cape Town would be complete without riding the cable car to the top of Table Mountain to soak up the views from one of the New 7th Wonders of the World. Depending on your timeframe, explore the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, go pub-hopping down Long Street or go wine tasting in the Winelands (or, closer to the city, the Constantia Wine Route).
